Cooper Equipment Rentals has acquired Warner Rentals and Scotty’s Rentals and Landscaping.
With their home base in British Columbia and Alberta, the new acquisitions expand Cooper’s branch and specialty footprint in western Canada.
“Our entire team is excited about these two acquisitions. They reaffirm our on-going commitment to building a truly Canadian, coast-to-coast equipment rental company,” said Justin Wharton, Cooper’s western Canada Director of Operations.
Warner Rentals was founded in 1975 by owner Ralph Warner and currently has five locations in Kamloops, Princeton, Revelstoke, Salmon Arm and Scotch Creek, British Columbia.
“Adding Warner Rentals and Scotty’s to the Cooper network helps us deliver the Cooper Difference – unsurpassed customer care, the best solutions and deep expertise – at a whole new level in western Canada,” said Cooper CEO Doug Dougherty.
The acquisition of Warner Rentals sees Cooper expand the company’s footprint in the central British Columbia interior and intensify their service coverage in a rapidly growing and important western Canadian market.
“We knew of Cooper’s well-established presence in the market and already have a great working relationship with their team in British Columbia, enhancing our ability to serve customers better across western Canada,” Warner said.
Headquartered in Rock View County, Alberta, Scotty’s Rentals and Landscaping specializes in climate control equipment – including heaters, generators, and tarping services – as well as fencing for residential construction. Founded in 2007, the company has built a reputation for providing excellent service and support.
“We are excited to join the Cooper family. The company being Canadian was a key factor in this decision, and Cooper’s size allows us to continue to service our customers with a variety of equipment solutions,” said Peter Jensen, owner of Scotty’s.
“Our team is looking forward to continuing to deliver the exceptional service we have built our business on, while being part of a larger company that is also committed to servicing local communities with a customer-first approach.”
The addition of Scotty’s bolsters Cooper’s climate control division, while also adding a new product line in fencing.
“These acquisitions not only exemplify our unwavering commitment to expanding our presence in western Canada but also reinforce our dedication to providing top-tier rental solutions to all major markets across Canada,” said Brian Spilak, Chief Operating Officer of Cooper.
“By integrating the strengths of Warner Rentals and Scotty’s with our own, we are poised to continue to deliver an unmatched level of service and support to customers across many new markets.”
